Forget about the M9, I want THIS camera! Mounted under the belly of a Tornado GR4, the “Raptor” (Reconnaissance Airborne Pod for Tornado) can zoom into details 75 miles away. For those who like to take low light shots, it contains a dual-band sensor using both visible light and infrared, so can be used both day and night. The infrared sensor offers superior haze-penetration in poor weather conditions, while the night time imagery can reveal details such as the fuel levels in storage tanks on the ground.
The ground station that receives the images are a bit big, though. Improvement suggestion is make it pocketable. 😉[ via Mail Online ]
